IEOSA ‘Early Childhood Development’ Education
"SEEK KNOWLEDGE FROM THE CRADLE TO THE GRAVE"
Alhamdulillah, IEOSA embarked on the first Pre-School Academy with an Integrated System which is recognised. When we embarked on creating this system, our research showed us that separating Islamic from the secular aspects would result in two types of education. For example: Eating Etiquettes - We teach our children that before we eat, we wash our hands but do not wipe and after we eat we wash and wipe. The Western system teaches that we must wipe our hands before eating. Therefore, using qualified personnel, we set out to research and develop the ‘Early childhood Development’ programme blending the Islamic and secular aspects into one. Over the years, IEOSA has made major improvements in the curriculum whereby the various aspects of a child's development is done from an Islamic perspective.
OBJECTIVES OF PRE-PRIMARY/KINDERGARTEN EDUCATION
The goal of the Integrated Islamic school is to provide opportunities for the total development of the child i.e. social, emotional, physical, intellectual, aesthetic and spiritual in keeping with the guidelines set out in the Qur'aan and Sunnah.
